    Speak Truth to Empower
    The principle “speak truth to empower” originated at an earlier conference called “What Is Journalism?” at the University of Oregon George S. Turnbull Center in October 2014. A traditional motto of journalism has been to “speak truth to power.” Participants in the earlier conference expressed that idea that, in an interactive world, journalists must also speak truth to empower people to act in their own self interest. They also postulated that the principle is mutual in that it is through the public’s willingness to engage with journalists that journalists are empowered to be a voice on behalf of people.

    The primary breakthrough from reviewing JTM’s work over this past year came in recognizing that our task is not to reimagine and reinvent journalism but rather to reimagine journalism in context of a system of communication that fosters trustworthy relationships, encourages learning, develops the capacity for holistic thinking, and inspires organizational responsibility and accountability. From our observations of the projects, we discovered these indicators are most successful when directly linked to community well-being. They are described more fully below.
    We further believe communities achieve these outcomes only by including those who have been most invisible and disenfranchised by the current system. Those outside the dominant culture are central to the reinvention, not only of journalism but of the system of freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment.
